Description
Hornet Leader - Carrier Air Operations is a huge game based on the material seen VDGT's other Vassal/PDF games. This new game takes a huge step forward in artwork created by Wan Chiu. Wan also created the fantastic artwork for the Frontline game, Alexander game, and the box art for Phantom Leader.

Hornet Leader has been further enhanced to make it fully consistent with the new systems seen in Phantom Leader. Hornet Leader spans all aspects of US naval aviation throughout the service life of the F/A-18 Hornet from 1983 to the present day.

The game places you in command of the pilots and aircraft of a squadron of U.S. Navy strike aircraft in hostile campaigns around the world. The aircraft and weapons available for each campaign are historically accurate.

A major part of the game is mission planning. You decide how to arm your aircraft and which pilots are best for the mission. Pilots are rated for skill level. Deciding which pilots to fly each mission is a major consideration. Your pilots will become fatigued with every mission. If you fly a pilot too often, his skills will degrade. Your pilots also gain experience with every mission flown. This makes for some great decision-making. Should you keep flying the top pilots and further fatigue them to get the job done, or fly the new guys to prep them for the tough missions ahead?

All the cards necessary are included to progress each pilot in experience from Newbie, to Green, Average, Skilled, Veteran, and Ace!

Hornet Leader includes the following aircraft: F/A-18C Hornet, F/A-18E Super Hornet, F/A-18F Super Hornet, EA-18G Grizzly, F-14 Tomcat, A-6 Intruder, A-7 Corsair II, EA-6B Prowler, E-2C Hawkeye, AV-8B Harrier II.

Hornet Leader includes the following weapons:
AIM-9 Sidewinder, AIM-7 Sparrow, AIM-120 AMRAAM, AM-54 Phoenix, Mk. 82, Mk. 83, Mk. 84, AGM-88 HARM, AGM-65 Maverick, AGM-84 Harpoon/SLAM, AGM-130, AGM-154, Mk. 20 Rockeye, ECM Pods, GBU-10, GBU-12, GBU-16, and Rocket Pods.

If the US Navy has it, so do you!
